Are you super behind in GOT? Here is how to catch up.

How To Be A 'Game Of Thrones' Bandwagon Fan

I am 100% positive the entire world is aware of the fact that "Game of Thrones"' last season began in mid-April. It is all over social media and so many brands are endorsing the series, such as Oreos and Johnnie Walker Whiskey. Plus, if your friends are anything like mine, they are all watching it.

"Game of Thrones" is everywhere, and if you are anything like me, you are enticed to watch. But how do you catch up, especially without adequate time to binge?

In order to binge seasons 1-7, without stopping it would take 2 days, 18 hours, and 40 minutes.

There are seven seasons and they are currently in season eight, it is a lot of content, a lot of heavy content at that. So, I am going to let y'all in on how I got caught up in the least amount of time possible.

Lucky for me, I started catching up in February, so I had about two and a half months to catch up. However, not so lucky for me, I have the attention of a housefly, so I had to figure out how to knock out each season quickly.

Step 1 was finding a nice friend or two to discuss my findings based on everything I watched.

I started watching and finished season 1. This season is quite important for learning the characters especially. Or you can just watch character videos on YouTube. I relied on both.

Next, I turned to YouTube for episode and season recap videos.

Instead of binging the seasons, I binged YouTube videos. I would also utilize my friends for discussion upon watching these videos.

However, there are some important scenes you may want to see, for both the excitement factor and just to admire how amazing the filmwork is. I was lucky enough that my friends would tell me which episodes I should specifically watch for these scenes (not going to mention them because I do not want to spoil anything).

My last step: I started season 8!

Now that I am in season 8 with everyone else, I am hype.

My only advice that may be helpful for you when you reach season 8 is to keep those friend discussions going and read up on fan theories. The fan theories reference past seasons and sometimes may provide something you missed while you were trying to catch up. They are also a conversation starter. Plus, the memes that flood social media after each episode are hilarious!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
